Every tour is guided by a marine naturalist.

 

For a short time we will also sail on the Intracoastal waterway

 

You might already have seen dolphins in captivity but the experience of seeing these beautiful intelligent mammals in their natural habitats is incomparable. There is a reason why dolphins on average live between 5 to 10 times longer in the wild.
